It is housed in a dedicated building covering 2000 m², which is home to 3 experimental platforms: macrocosms (12 units, each covering 30 m3, 5 m²), mesocosms (24 units under construction, covering 1 to 4 m3, 0.5 to 1.0 m²) and microcosms (from 16 to more than 400 units depending on the type of ecosystem studied, with or without green plants). The first two platforms are designed for terrestrial ecosystems in natural light, while microcosms are installed in the laboratory.

Ecotron Montpellier is located on the Baillarguet campus.
